Students receiving financial aid from Wesleyan continue
to do so as participants in the program in Germany. A budget will be
provided by the Office of International Studies, and after admission to the
program, students will receive a revised award letter from the Financial Aid
Office. Any questions should be directed to the Financial Aid Office well in
advance of departure. Outside students should consult their financial aid
offices, since financial aid is not always transferable. The program cannot
offer scholarships or loans to students from other institutions.
